Take ownership of a file

If you must access a file or a folder that you do not have rights to, you must take ownership of that file or folder. When you do this, you replace the security permissions that were originally created for the file or folder.

To take ownership of a file, follow these steps:

1. Right-click the file that you want to take ownership of--> and then click Properties.

2. Click the Security tab--> and then click OK on the Security message (if one appears).

3. Click Advanced--> and then click the Owner tab.

4. In the Name list--> click Administrator--> or click the Administrators group--> and then click OK.

The administrator or the administrators group now owns the file.
